The Best Female Characters on TV

Possessing both intellectual and supernatural faculties, television’s leading ladies and their complex personalities are slowly but surely dominating their individual universes. For years, women played a supporting role in most of the early sitcoms, usually as doting mothers or pretty, complacent wives. But every so often, there were women who dared to shake things up, either on their own shows or as part of a larger ensemble cast. We love them and their multifaceted excellence, so here are 25 onscreen Female characters who whom we have liked the most.

1. Daenerys Targaryen


Princess Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Daenerys Stormborn, is one of the last confirmed members of House Targaryen, along with her older brother Viserys, who refers to her as Dany. She is the youngest child of King Aerys II Targaryen and his sister-wife, Queen Rhaella. She is one of the major POV characters in A Song of Ice and Fire. In the television adaptation Game of Thrones, Daenerys is played by Emilia Clarke.


Daenerys is one of the last two surviving members (along with her older brother, Viserys) of House Targaryen, who, until fourteen years before the events of the first novel, had ruled Westeros from the Iron Throne for nearly three hundred years. She subsequently appeared in A Clash of Kings (1998) and A Storm of Swords (2000). Daenerys was one of a few prominent characters not included in 2005’s A Feast for Crows, but returned in the next novel A Dance with Dragons (2011). Overall, she has the 4th highest number of point-of-view chapters in the currently published books of the series.
